Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this light comedy, Pierre is a middle-aged man with a twenty-year old wife. The couple is expecting a baby. Some passing discomfort causes him to take Cecile to the emergency room. There he discovers that Isabell, a girlfriend he had been with when he was in his twenties, is the attending physician. In their discussions, he discovers that she has just moved back to France after serving in a humanitarian mission to South America. When he discovers that she is staying at her parent's house, he offers her the use of the spare room in his house. He is undoubtedly somewhat surprised when she agrees to this. Her presence is, naturally enough, disruptive to his domestic arrangements but not for the reasons one might expect. Her biological clock is ticking, and she wants to have a baby. The married couple watch in amazement as this very self-involved woman "interviews" prospective fathers for her child at their home.
